Republican Congressman Tom Rooney is a member of the House Intelligence Committee. Here’s what he had to say to CNN about the committee’s Russian collusion investigation:
“It’s been going on for a year. We’ve interviewed scores of witnesses and now we’ve gotten to the point where we’re literally bringing people in for nine hours just so the Democrats can leak to the press something as ridiculous as ‘white lies.’ “
Hope Hicks, the 29 year old White House communications director, was such a witness. Democrat Eric Swalwell asked if she ever lied for her boss. After consulting with here lawyer Hope confessed that yes she had. White lies. Like “the president is in a meeting” when he’s not really in a meeting.
She resigned the next day.
